A single sentence description.
Model driver for Tersoff-style potentials ported from LAMMPS v003
Description Model driver that supports parametrizations of the Tersoff-style three-body potential. It is ported from LAMMPS and supports the same format for parameter files. The commonly used variants by Tersoff and Nord/Albe/Erhart/Nordlund are supported, see source citations for details.
